Black Bean Soup

Well you want something simple. Please – read on and guten appetit! In the ingredients we added the note of omitting the beef and cheese because the original recipe did not include meat or cheese and it is great that way, but is also very tasty the way we have provided.


  • 3 cans black beans
  • 3 (+/-) lbs beef stew chunks (omit for vegetarians)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 jar of salsa
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp cilantro, chopped


  1. In a large pot add in the olive oil and turn the burner on medium.
  2. Add the beef. Stirring occasionally cook until meat is browned, or cooked all the way through (about 10 minutes)
  3. Add 1 can of black beans (do not drain) and half the jar of salsa to a mixing bowl
  4. Using a hand immersion blender, blend those ingredients until its is a smooth mixture (Note: If you do not have an immersion blender, you can add these ingredients to a regular blender/food processor)
  5. Once the beef is done cooking add all of the ingredients to the pot and simmer for 15 minutes
  6. Top with cheese, sour cream, avacado – whatever you would like. Or nothing at all
  7. Guten Appetit!

About Us
This blog is brought to you by Dan & Kyla. Both of us are dedicated to eating as healthy as possible, working out, being active, and challenging ourselves to experience everything life has to offer. Our Sunday 'prep day' has helped us grow closer as a couple and has allowed us to enjoy our seldom 'cheat days' to the fullest. Friends and family have always had questions about our weekly rituals and recipes so we thought we would share how we go week to week, finding recipes, cooking our meals, and managing our busy lifestyle with a health conscience view. This is the first blog we have created together and will hopefully get progressively better with our posts and feedback. Please feel free to post any comments or questions about a recipe, or ideas on how to make the recipe or website better. Most of all we hope you enjoy what we have to share. Guten Appetit!
